Injury update: Watmore ruled out for season

Sunderland boss David Moyes has confirmed that Duncan Watmore is likely to miss the rest of the Black Cats’ season following the results of his scan on Monday.

The 22-year-old was taken off on a stretcher during Sunderland's 2-1 win over Leicester on Saturday, following a collision with Christian Fuchs.

Results from the scans revealed Watmore has suffered a cruciate knee ligament damage, which is likely to rule him out of action for the remainder of the 2016-17 campaign.

Watmore has started 11 games for  Moyes' side this season.
